Natural Eye Cream for Dark Circles

Natural Eye Cream for Dark Circles Dark circles under the eyes are a fairly common problem, which can bring a lot of discomfort (at least psychological, if not physical). Most women use concealer to cover them up, but this approach only hides the problem instead of solving it. There are special eye creams for dark circles which help to make dark blemishes around the eyes less visible.

In most cases, perorbital dark circles are blood vessels visible through the skin. Skin around the eyes is very thin (0.5 mm compared to 2 mm on the rest of the body) and lacks adipose tissue, which makes the skin lighter and the blood vessels more visible. Sometimes dark circles around the eyes are caused by periorbital hyperpigmentation (increased production of melanin around the eyes).

Heredity is a common cause of this condition. People with very light skin and blood vessels closely located to the surface of the skin have dark circles quite often. Periorbital hyperpigmentation, in its turn, frequently occurs in people with dark pigmentation or Mediterranean ancestry.

However, heredity is not the only cause of dark circles under the eyes. There are two big groups of causes, which sometimes overlap: pale skin and vascular problems. Blood vessels under the eyes may become more visible because of anemia, smoking, and medications that cause blood vessels to dilate. Paleness of the skin can be caused by fatigue, lack of moisture or vitamins, and age (as people get older, their skin loses collagen, becoming thinner and more translucent).

Creams and gels for dark circles contain ingredients that intensively hydrate and strengthen thin skin under the eyes. It helps to reduce dark circles and prevent their reappearance. Creams for dark circles and bags under the eyes are produced by many natural and organic cosmetic brands, including Planeta Organica and Green Pharmacy.

Planeta Organica is a Russian beauty brand that produces organic cosmetics based on traditional recipes from around the world. Its Secrets of Arctica line includes Cooling Eye Gel for Puffy Eyes and Dark Circles formulated with organic arctic raspberry seed oil. Light oil obtained from arctic raspberry seeds is rich in vitamins and essential fatty acids. It actively nourishes and moisturises the skin and improves its elasticity, helping to eliminate dark circles.

The effect of raspberry seed oil is complemented and enhanced by vitamin A microcapsules, tocopherol (vitamin E), and hydrolysed collagen. These ingredients strengthen the skin around the eyes and provide it with nutrients. Other natural ingredients contained in the product include heather extract, mountain arnica extract, and witch hazel extract. The cream is free of parabens, phthalates, synthetic colourants and fragrances.

Another effective eye cream for dark circles is produced by the Ukrainian beauty brand Green Pharmacy. Its key ingredient is natural parsley extract that helps to eliminate the signs of fatigue, reduces puffiness, and improves complexion.

The cream contains one more effective natural ingredient, black chokeberry extract. This flavonoid-rich extract strengthens capillary walls and improves microcirculation, which prevents the reappearance of dark circles.

Eye creams and gels for dark circles are very easy to use. All you need to do is apply a small amount of cream to clean skin around the eyes twice a day, in the morning and in the evening. Remember that you shouldn’t rub or stretch the skin. Just pat it lightly with your fingertips until the cream absorbs.

Of course, the effect won’t show immediately, you need to use the cream for at least week or two to reduce dark circles. The effect won’t last if you suffer from chronic fatigue. You need to get enough sleep if you want to get rid of dark circles once and for all. If your skin has already begun to lose collagen because of age, you should use eye cream for mature skin which is designed specifically to make up for collagen loss and restore skin elasticity.
